My friend and I were joking around in the weeks leading up to my surgery about what I might say when I woke up. I turned that joke into a reality when I muttered the words: "Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!" Yes, they all laughed at me and I think trying to explain myself while still high on all the medication didn't make it any better
Just had a recent knee surgery. Beforehand, the anesthesiologist came in to do a nerve block. He fiddled with the IV bag, then asked, "Are you feeling loopy yet?" I wasn't, so I said, "Oh, nope, I feel fine." Then he said it'd hit me in about 10 seconds. It was funny when it did, because the ceiling tiles started to shimmer and I started laughing saying, "Oh, I feel good now." Nothing was very funny when I woke up, though. I tend to have a bad reaction to anesthesia, so I was pretty miserable for a while in the recovery room. :(
Well to be fair, you were pretty doped up. I'm sure they've seen worst.
I told my nurse she was the "nicest goddamned nurse in all of history."
